When I first saw these hairpins in a photo I thought the blue was enamel. I didn´t know anything about them and the seller thought it was enamel. But I was inlove and bought them with out knowing what it was.
Later I have found out these are chinese Kingfisher feather (!) hairpins, probably Qing Dynasty but from late 18th to early 19th century. It looks like gilt metal, could be silver under it. The flowears are about 6,2 cm wide (about 2.4 inches ?).
Here are some more for inspiration:
